    Now that the AT&T and time warner merger is official ,This made me wonder if it affect all of its assets including Cartoon Network.

    I mean think about it with that merger perhaps maybe Cartoon network will go back to 24 minute cartoons and probably get their own official streaming service with the help of AT&T ,Am I right?

    I am worried that they might make it an internet cable exclusive to DirecTV Now. Currently its on Sling, PlayStation Vue, and DirecTV Now. AT&T owns DirecTV Now.

    Management-wise, probably nothing unless AT&T wants to restructure Time Warner.

    Turner will remain unchanged.

    I'll believe it when I see it. As far as I'm concerned, mergers like these always tend to lead to negative changes, loss of jobs, and loss of competence, as well as confidence from a viewerbase that can only stand for so much change.

    Too bad CN could use some changes to the way they're doing things, but whatever.

    Who knows? When Comcast took over NBC they kind of improved it and it's local stations where they hired more. Took out some of the lower rated "deadweight" cable channels , improved Telemundo. In speaking of that I wish they were forced to do again what Comcast was forced to do , not have NBCU networks (including the ones that were originally owned by Comcast) be Xfinity exclusive. It's hard to know what they want to do with any of the Turner networks they may want to keep some status quo more than shake it up. The fact that CN already focuses on streaming in the first place plays into AT&T's possible agenda for Time Warner in the first place.

    CN might be left alone, they might makr CN convert into an a generic kids channel with live action shows. Or everything might be done I’m Flash from here on out to cut down on costs.

    It’s too early to tell, that’s for sure.

    Judging by them keeping CNN's head in charge at least until 2020 , maybe AT&T would rather be consistent than shake things up. Cartoon Network also seems to have long term plans that they made knowing that merger was still a possibility I don't think the new owners are going to "welp, we here now so let's mess this up" They may actually work on devolving the Turner networks into streaming services that so happen to be data free on AT&T's network. They seemingly wanted Time Warner because it had content, they had content providing system already so I don't think they are going to mess that up.

    1. AT&T better make those Turner networks into live streaming services!

    2. They wanted Time Warner also because they want to compete with services like Netflix.
